Super Heroes, Holy Land:
"Tree of Knowledge" (for Tu B'shevat)

This is "Tree of Knowledge," one of the new papercuts premiering in my new show, "Super Heroes, Holy Land" — opening tomorrow night at UCLA Hillel's Dortort Gallery in Westwood.

It seemed an appropriate papercut to share on Tu B'Shevat, the "new year of the trees." It's inspired by a vision of Israel in its early years being planted with trees funded by Jews around the world. This tree is a representation of this bustling growth of the state, backed by cut-up dictionaries and representations of books and libraries from comics.

Opening Night Details
Thursday, January 16, from 7 to 9 at the Dortort Gallery: 574 Hilgard Avenue; LA, CA 90024. Parking is available across the street at on-campus meters; call 310-208-3081 for more information. The show is open through March 14. And if you want to see what else is in the show, please check out the online PDF catalog.
